with our chief national security correspondent jim sciutto here tw latest. jim? >> i think you could say today we saul the full yin and yang of the u.s. policy response to the crisis in crimea. on the other side, secretary of defense chuck hagel demonstrating the u.s. commitment to its nato allies with the deployment of some aircraft and the cancellation-of nato contacts with russia. on the diplomatic side, we saw the opening of a diplomatic path to solving the crisis, the so-called off ramp u.s. officials have mentioned before, still undefined, kerry said, but a start. >> reporter: u.s. and russian diplomats face to face for the first time since the start of the crisis in crimea. secretary of state john kerry said they are now negotiating a diplomatic path to ending it. >> we are committed to working with russia. together with our friends and allies in an effort to provide a way for this entire situation to find the road to deescalation. >> reporter: russian and ukrainian officials, however, did not meet. >> why didn't you meet lavrov today? >> reporter: but as the diplomats talk or don
problems before. back in 2010, there was a race for an open seat in kentucky left vacant by jim bunning's retirement. republican primary that year saw a guy you might recognize, rand paul. but he wasn't big rand paul at the time and he was the underdog going up against kentucky secretary of state trey grayson. grayson was mcconnell's main man. he was said to have hand picked grayson and, of course, publicly endorsed him. then when the election came around, rand paul crushed mcconnell's man, grayson, at the polls. in other words, mitch mcconnell, one of the most powerful republicans in washington, no one argues that, but he couldn't carry trey grayson to victory in a primary in his home state at which point mcconnell may have realized something. he had a self-preservation problem. he went out and hired rabid paul's adviser, named jesse benton to run his campaign. he could at least go out and hire the general. you have mitch mcconnell working with rand paul's guy and suddenly something makes sense here. rand paul, not even up for re-election right now has been going around, you may have s
that didn't exist. >> there were accusations this was going to bring back jim crowe. i looked through the jim crowe laws of the deep south where i grew up. i couldn't find anything common to that at all in this bill. it was very minor language changes. can you help our audience understand exactly what did this bill do? >> senate bill 1062 clarified an updated arizona religious freedom restoration act as we saw courts around the country basically saying that the government wasn't a party to the lawsuit, then the religious freedom restoration act would not apply. that was the main clarification. an individual or a business could assert their religious freedom rights, whether or not the government was a party to the lawsuit so it would be intended to help the little sisters of the poor, the photographer, the wedding cake maker, hobby lobby, those businesses where the government is trying to force them to forego their religious beliefs. >> it was not discriminatory but for example if i owned a jewish dell ka teten and someone said i want you to do bacon wrapped shrimp, then i would be pro
this that is unrelated. you heard jim talk about the un envoy sent to crimea. that was threatened and not kidnapped. he is now safe and preparing to leave ukraine. several armed men threatened special envoy robert sari. they blocked him at a coffee shop. break this down for us. what happened and what kind of threat was this? how did he escape the coffee shop? >> we heard jim saying someone will get hurt. this un envoy has his diplomatic mission cut short in crimea. it just arrived. he visited a naval base and was leaving when armed men, 10 to 15 in number, not everyone with weapons surrounded him and demanded he leave crimea immediately and go to the airport. he got into the car he came with and refused to get out and the men blocked the car. they then were threatening him. he was described as shaken and not physically hurt. he walk and sought refuge. the late news is that the united nations is saying they are taking a late flight out and will return shortly to kiev to continue his mission. cut short by today's incident, the words of the united nation spokesman office here in new york. secretary genera
that the president and we've heard these comments from secretary hagel, jim. what seems to be the tone where you are. >> tamron, first of all, turning quickly to kiev, what a first day on the job to arseni -- he's the former economy and foreign minister, very well known to both the u.s. and russia. he was officially voted today as the interim prime minister, and his was a full plate. those russian-speaking commandos that you mentioned carry ak-47s and sniper rifles who stormed the crimean building, they're holed up inside. police have cordened off the area. crimea very important, because it is the home to the russian black sea fleet. to worsen matters there, now pro-russian lawmakers in crimea are calling for a referendum for separating from the ukraine. meanwhile, in an offense show of force, though, the kremlin here in moscow denies any connection to the events unfolding in you another crane form the surprise war games are in the second day. you mentioned 150,000 troops, add to that some 900 tanks and some 200 aircraft and warships, and it's all focused on the russian border with ukraine, keeping
approved that use of force. on the phone, we have chief national security correspondent jim sciutto. jim, what is this very quick vote signal to you? >> reporter: i think it's the russians slow rolling an invasion of sovereign ukrainian territory, and in direct defiance of repeated public and stern warnings from u.s. officials ranging from secretary kerry, secretary hagel right up to the top, right up to the president. you saw his comments yesterday. it is a sobering development. the fact is, u.s. officials were already telling us yesterday that those masked troops on the ground as of yesterday in and around crimea were russian so now you have a public in effect acknowledgment from the russian government that the president wants to send troops in there, this authorization. i think the other point is that you can see this as an intelligence failure by the u.s. officials had been telling us in the last 48, 72 hours that it was their assessment that the russians would not go in, and here you have it happening. it is not the way they did it in georgia in 2008. you remember when russia sent t
right, ian williams, thank you for that report. >>> let's turn now to russia where nbc's jim maceda joins us from moscow. what's the latest from there, jim, particularly in the wake of the news conference that putin held yesterday? >> reporter: hi, kristen. well, from the -- certainly from this perch here, it does feel like a flurry of diplomacy in the past 24 hours. the chances of avoiding war in the ukraine seems to be getting a boost, particularly from putin's comments yesterday, tuesday, that he saw no need to use force in ukraine and had no desire to annex the crimean peninsula. those two comments really allowed the military confrontation that we've been reporting on to take a step b k back. and even though, as ian reports, crimea remains tense on the ground today with a new report that russians had seized two ukrainian anti-missile posts, the perception still is that ukraine is spinning now not towards war, but towards some kind of diplomatic solution. secretary of state john kerry's meeting with sergey lavrov, for instance, starting in paris in less than an hour, is their fi

national security reporter jim sciutto is in washington. could this threat of seizing assets, could that deter the u.s. or eu from less viaing sanctions? >> reporter: it shows how quickly this could spiral into a tit for tat or unupmanship. right now they just target individuals, government officials involved in the decision to send troops into sovereign ukrainian territory. if the russians were to follow through on next step much seizing assets, you know, you have another option for the u.s. which has been discussed and brought up by republican senators, bob corker and others of sanctioning russian entities, meaning state banks, oil companies, energy companies, and that's when you start talking about real money. russia's trade, russia's very economy is dependent on access to the international finance system, its trade with europe. again europe lose as lot and that's why you're seeing opposition from the germans and british and others to more significant sanctions that have already been put on the table by the u.s. >> jim, educate our viewers. how common is it for a country that has
jim s crow. i lived through the jim crow d laws ofan the deep south where grew up. i couldn't find anything common to that at all in this bill. it was very minor language changes. so can you help our audience understand exactly what did thi bill do? >> senate bill 1062 simply clarified and updated arizona's religious freedom restoration act as we saw courts around thep country basically saying that the government, if the government wasn't a party to the lawsuit, then the religious freedom restoration act wouldn't apply. an individual or businessicate assert their religious freedom rights whether the government was a party to the lawsuit so it would help the little sisters oa the poor, the photographer, the wedding cake baker, those typesf of businesses where the government is trying to force them to forego their religious believes. >> it was not discriminatory, but if i was the owner of a j jewish delicatessen and was kosher and someone came in and said i want you to do my wedding and i want bacon wrapped shrimp andgo i said i didn't want to d that, i would be protected because the
.s. officials. much of the world is on edge right now. let's go over to jim sciutto. he's been following all of these developments. it's sort of reminiscent of the battle days of the cold war. >> no question. you get a clear sense of how concerned administration officials are by the repeated, stern warnings delivered at the highest level to russia. on friday, president obama called russian president vladimir putin. today, we heard it from defense secretary chuck hagel, secretary of state john kerry and jay carney. the message verbatim. do not send russian troops into the ukraine and the u.s. will be watching. this is all as violence broke out on the streets of the ukraine today. today, pa frightening taste of worse-case scenario for the ukraine, the country divided among ethnic lines. adding to the tension, russian warplanes placed on high alert and russian troops mobilizing for military exercises right along the ukraine eastern border. with the obama administration increasingly concerned about russian's intentions, president obama issued a stern warning. >> i urged him not to take any steps
